Firstly I'd like to say I've been absolutely blown away by the response I got to the day 1 post, all the interest was totally unexpected, thank you all so much for the lovely comments and encouragement, it really is appreciated.
We're on day 2 of the Christmas nail art challenge set by the lovely overpolished.com and pink & polished. This one is nail art based on a holiday song. It was a tricky one! There are lots of Christmas songs I love, but most of them are quite hard to translate into nail art.
My favourite Christmas song of all time is Fairytale of New York, but no way could I think of a design for that, I hope someone does though, would love to see it done!
Eventually after much deliberation I decided to go with Hark the Herald Angels Sing, because I reckon I can at least have a go at angels, and this is what I eventually came up with:
I used Nails Inc Emerald Street for the base, and nail art stripers to draw the angels. I could have sworn I had a stamping plate with musical notes on, but of course I couldn't find it when I wanted to use it, so I had to draw the notes on with a Sally Hansen nail art pen which I reviewed HERE.
Here's another pic, this one under the kitchen lights:
And one more pic, a bit closer up:
It has to be said, I'm not 100% satified with these, I think if I did them again I could get them neater, but I still prefer them to my first try:
These ones actually looked pretty good in real life, but looked awful on the photos, which is why I had another go, plus they're not singing, and that's kind of the point of the song (haha). The blue polish is Barry M Cobalt and the gold glitter is Barry M Yellow Topaz, just in case you wanted to know!
And just in case you're not famailiar with the song:
And here's a reminder of what's to come:
I hope you've liked this angelic post, and it's got you feeling all Christmassy! Please check out the links below to see what every one else has been up to. See you on candy cane day!
Until next time...
